Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image
Pickpick

What a way to ring in the new year! Amazing story about a woman who fought all odds to break free from a lifetime of abuse and neglect to become a PhD (without ANY schooling up to the age of 17)! This was such an inspirational story about forgiveness, perseverance, and the importance of self-love/acceptance. Just in time to motivate me for 2020! #Booked2020 pick for Millennial Author

4thhouseontheleft I went back and forth with starting 2020 with this or Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney (for the millenial prompt). I decided on the Rooney book because I have a hard time reading NF with house guests around, but will be reading Educated next! 2mo
samanthagutt @4thhouseontheleft I definitely recommend it! 😊 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great pick. I read this recently also! ♥️📚👊🏻 2mo

1. Total Books= 328 (Most of these were picture books)

2. #TBRReads= 23; #ImpulseReads= 30; #HolidayReads= 276

3. Yes! Lots of new authors and several reads that will become #HolidayTraditions.

4. My favorite game was Guess the Book Cover. Even without the games though, I loved the teamwork and seeing different traditions and holiday photos. #TeamFestivus was the best! 🙌

I was at work today, but since hardly anyone else was there, I took advantage of the Kindle Cloud reader to read these two magical cozy mysteries. They‘re cute, easy reads to help me get to my GR goal. 😉

I'm very late to the game with this book, but I wanted the last book I finished for 2019 to be one that's been on my TBR for a long time.

This book deserves all the praise it's gotten over the years. It opened my eyes to so much. The characters were complex and well-developed which made the story seem to fly by. I'll definitely have to read more by this author now.

Definitely not what I thought it would be, but I loved it. The way it is written is a new format for me. Each page, each month, had my mind racing to connect the dots between all the characters to try and discover what happened to the girls. Great read!

Read This Book! I couldn't put it down. I hope that books like this will finally help put an end to the sexual harassment experienced by both women, and men. This is something that should never have happened and all of the women who have come forward are so brave. 💚

This is also my Book 5 finished for #24B42020. Bringing my total reading hrs to 28.5🎉

wanderinglynn 🙌🏻❤️📚 28+hours?! You rock! 🎉🥳👏🏻 2mo
Andrew65 That‘s brilliant! 👏👏👏 2mo
Texreader I haven‘t read it yet but I need to. I believe real journalists are so important to break these kinds of stories, to doggedly figure them out and not let go. They are often real heroes as well, getting the story and making sure it‘s told. 2mo
Addison_Reads @Texreader I agree with you about the journalists. They don't always get the recognition they deserve. 2mo

Book 3 also completed today for #24B42020. This brings my total reading time today to 12hrs and with my 13hrs yesterday that puts me at 25hrs already! 😁 Having insomnia pays off sometimes.

This was another so-so pick for me. I loved the background information on this time in history and the potato famine, but I just never connected with the characters.

wanderinglynn w00t! 🙌🏻 Way to go! 👏🏻🎉🥳 But sorry about the insomnia. 2mo

Another book finished for #24B42020.🎉

This one had a very creepy storyline and I was holding out hope that I'd love it in the end, but sadly it was just okay. Too many flaws in the story and timelines that weren't properly addressed for me, but the whispering definitely made me glance twice around the house tonight after turning off the lights.

The 6th book in the series. I really enjoy this series. It is a cozy mystery with a very unique premise of a 1940s detective ghost who haunts our MC and helps her with solving the crime. There is also his ability to pull her back in time, while dreaming, to events that happened in his life. #TBRreads
